I feel that poverty is not very widespread in Singapore. Although there are people who struggle with money in Singapore, you do not see many beggars or homeless people like you can see in other countries. This is mainly in part due to the efforts of the Singaporean government. They give subsidies , rebates, and medisave to all Singaporeans. Hence, not many people in Singapore are extremely impoverished. And for thoses that are, the government gives them large subsidies, and if the Mai breadwinner is unable to work due to an accident, medi save covers most of the bills. Hence, I feel that true poverty is now very scarce in Singapore.
